Falloir The verb  falloir  is used only in the third person singular (  il ) form. It generally expresses necessity.  Although  falloir  and  devoir  often express the same idea,  falloir  is the stronger of the verbs.  “I have to go to the bank”  or  “I must go to the bank” can be expressed in any of the following ways:  Je dois aller à la banque.   Il faut que j'aille à la banque.   Il me faut aller à la banque.   Falloir  is used:  With the infinitive   Il faut arriver à l'heure.  (It is necessary to arrive on time
